Picks and Pans Review: TV's Best Bad Boys

Posted on

>MEAN:

Nucky Thompson

Boardwalk Empire, HBO

Steve Buscemi’s bootlegger has had to grow more coldly ruthless or be run out of Atlantic City.

MEANER:

Joffrey Baratheon

Game of Thrones, HBO

Wormily played by Jack Gleeson, the occupier of the Iron Throne throws hissy fits that end in massacres. Caligula’s mini-me.

MEANEST:

Walter White

Breaking Bad, AMC

He’s now so corrupted by his drug-empire ambitions, his wife wishes he’d die of cancer. Bryan Cranston makes this creep fascinatingly repugnant.
